Most people these days have never heard of a Circular Sock Machine. These hand-cranked machines have a long history. They are also called CSM’s (Circular Sock Machines) because they knit a circular tube. By learning to use a CSM machine you can make heels and toes by manoeuvring the yarns and needles to create socks. Local guild member Eileen MacNeil demonstrates. While on site, be sure to check out the Lakeside Impressions visual art and craft exhibit.
